Manatee Religious Services, Inc. is a Christian Clearinghouse, owned by the Christian churches in Manatee County. Birthed through the Manatee County Ministerial Association, M.R.S. is also the action arm for the ministerial association.
The purpose of M.R.S. is to verify the truth of the situation and actual need of the applicant. Appropriate referrals are made, options are considered, and the information is then provided to individual churches so they can feel their benevolence is being used wisely. In these days of shrinking budgets and careful givers the church must truly be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” To the end M.R.S. diligently and prayerfully continues to serve the church as wise stewards for the verifiable truth.
